The International Organization of Black Security Executives (IOBSE) has announced its 2023 board members. Featuring an amazing group of individuals taking the lead on IOBSE initiatives, we look forward to seeing the great work they will accomplish.
IOBSE is the leading organization for minority security professionals. As a non-profit organization that provides education and training to help keep practitioners and students abreast of current trends in security operations and technology, their mission has now eclipsed several generations of security and loss prevention professionals—and is still growing to this day.
Active members include individuals who are either a director, manager, supervisor, or exempt-level security practitioner; law enforcement officials; security solution providers at the executive, managerial, or supervisory level; and educators providing instruction or administering educational programs in security, criminal justice, law enforcement, or closely related programs at accredited colleges or universities. However, anyone interested in learning more about the security industry is welcomed.
By continuing to build a culture of acceptance and mutual respect where both attitudes and actions will encourage understanding, IOBSE looks to create an environment where people of all attributes and backgrounds are valued, where every voice has a chance to be heard, and every individual has an equal opportunity to be successful.
